How Can I Protect My Property During Divorce?

Dividing marital property is a process that can be contentious. Who gets the house? How will complex assets be valued and divided? Which assets are separate property? These questions can be difficult to answer unless you have an experienced lawyer on your side. At Shawna L. Stevens PLLC, we strive to help couples reach a property agreement. Be assured, however, that we will go to trial to protect your interests if that is best for you. Our attorneys are skilled litigators who do not back away from a fight. Please talk with us to find out how we can protect your rights during divorce.

Valuing And Dividing Marital Property In Virginia

Virginia family law divides marital property by equitable distribution. This means the court will decide what is equitable — or fair — in each case. That may be a 50/50 division of the property, but it may not. Each case is unique. We will argue for a division that is fair to you.

Anything considered marital property or mixed property (part marital and part separate) must be valued and divided. We have extensive experience with all types of property and assets, including:

  • Homes
  • Vehicles
  • Furnishings
  • Retirement accounts and IRAs
  • Pensions
  • Financial accounts
  • Debts

In addition, we handle high net worth divorces with complex assets such as businesses, professional practices, stock options, investments, vacation homes, art, and high-end vehicles. When necessary, we work with experts in accounting, real estate appraisal, business valuation, and other fields to ensure an accurate valuation of these assets.
